'Going Researcher' in the Occupy Poble Sec Cinema Forum: Listening to the Screenings and Tracing a Fluid Assemblage of Learning and Care
Castro-Varela, Aurelio
Ethnography and Education, v13 n3 p396-412 2018
This paper discusses the main aspects of an ethnographic approach to the Occupy Poble Sec Cinema Forum in Barcelona, Spain, and the difficulties of using participant observation, in which vision is still dominant, in this setting. The methodological challenge stemmed from the 'native' position of the researcher--a member of the Forum's organising group--and the sensory nature of the case study, which displaced the pre-eminence of visual inquiry. Listening attentively, rather than watching, became the main method of studying the Forum's film screenings. The paper then contextualises these screenings as a pedagogical site emerging through a mobile technological apparatus and a relational context shaped by a logic of care. Lastly, the collective learning which this activity gave rise to is analysed as an event whose newness was based on a more-than-human assemblage of elements and also on the experiences and perspectives of those involved.
